Though the counter-insurgency strategies took shape in the 1950s and early 1960s, the U.S. intelligence community moved to formalize those lessons in 1965 by commissioning Project X. Based at the U.S. Army Intelligence Center and School at Fort Holabird, Maryland, the project was tasked with the development of lesson plans which would "provide intelligence training to friendly foreign countries," according to a brief history, which was prepared in 1991.
Called "a guide for the conduct of clandestine operations," Project X "was first used by the U.S. Intelligence School on Okinawa to train Vietnamese and, presumably, other foreign nationals," the history stated.
Linda Matthews of the Pentagon's Counterintelligence Division recalled that in 1967-68, some of the Project X training material was prepared by officers connected to the so-called Phoenix program in Vietnam, an operation that included assassination of suspected communists. "She suggested the possibility that some offending material from the Phoenix program may have found its way into the Project X materials at that time," according to the Pentagon report.
In the 1970s, the U.S. Army Intelligence Center and School moved to Fort Huachuca in Arizona and began exporting Project X material to U.S. military assistance groups working with "friendly foreign countries." By the mid-1970s, the Project X material was going to military forces all over the world.
In 1982, the Pentagon's Office of the Assistant Chief of Staff for Intelligence ordered the Fort Huachuca center to supply lesson plans to the School of the Americas at Fort Benning, Ga. "The working group decided to use Project X material because it had previously been cleared for foreign disclosure," the Pentagon history stated.
According to surviving documents released under a Freedom of Information Act request, the Project X lessons contained a full range of intelligence activities. A 1972 listing of Project X lesson plans covered aerial surveillance, electronic eavesdropping, interrogation, counter-sabotage measures, counter-intelligence, handling of informants, break-ins and censorship.
One manual warned that insurgents might even "resort to subversion of the government by means of elections [in which] insurgent leaders participate in political contests as candidates for government office." Citizens were put on "'black, gray or white lists' for the purpose of identifying and prioritizing adversary targets." The lessons suggested, too, creation of block-by-block inventories of families and their assets to keep tabs on the population. (Source)
Note the part about citizens being placed on "black, gray and white lists". These individuals were then targeted by CIA sponsored "hit squads" for murder, extortion, torture, kidnapping, etc. I have maintained that the CIA is using these same tactics on the American Patriot Movement, with the "so-called" Patriot Act and various claims of "National Security" running interference.
I have also written numerous articles about the CIA managing Illuminati business interests which include Narcotics, Gambling, Prostitution, White Slavery and Pedophilia.
"a front-page story in The Washington Post described the Pentagon's release of long-withheld documents that described how, for decades, the U.S. Army had been training soldiers around the world in techniques of blackmail, kidnapping, murder and spying on non-violent political opponents. That mysterious training program went by the spooky code name "Project X."
A day after that, a federal grand jury in Miami returned a narcotics indictment against Joseph Michel Francois, the military police chief who had led the coup in Haiti which ousted elected president Jean-Bertrand Aristide in 1991. Francois and his military allies held power for the next three years, while Francois ran a U.S.-trained counter-narcotics unit that managed to arrest fewer and fewer drug traffickers.
Meanwhile, in Washington, senior national security officials mocked Aristide's repeated charge that the military government was deeply implicated in drug trafficking. And when President Clinton pressed to restore Aristide to power in 1993, the CIA undercut that strategy by sending a classified report to Congress that portrayed the exiled president as a psychopath. With its well-placed allies in Washington, Haiti's military government held on for another year before Clinton finally ordered an invasion that ousted Francois and Haiti's generals. (Ibid)
The indictment in Miami accuses Francois of collaborating with Colombian drug cartels to smuggle 33 tons of cocaine and heroin into the United States over a nine-year period. The Francois indictment came only two months after the indictment of another U.S. "counter-narcotics" ally, Venezuelan Gen. Ramon Guillen Davillaver.
Interestingly enough, Narcotics smuggling has also been linked to the Flight School in Florida that trained the 911 hijackers.
So the questions become, what black, gray and white lists are there of American citizens being maintained by the CIA? How many have been "eliminated"? And when does the big roundup of dissidents begin? Stay tuned....
